    Show me evidence that eating lots of red meat and low fiber causes cancer. Haven't met or heard of anyone on a carnivore diet or animal based diet (like myself) with colon cancer.

    Hi everyone! This is a long lesson, but I hope you all enjoy it! Let me know if you have any questions. I misspoke at around 6:16 when discussing Lynch syndrome – it is autosomal dominant, but it doesn't necessarily mean that one of your 1st degree relatives (parents) had to have CRC, they could have had another type of cancer (ex. endometrial, ovarian, etc.). Want to clarify that here 🙂 JJ

    3 questions 1) what to eat? 2) when to eat? 3) How much to eat? If you study these three questions you will get answer. Follow intermittent fasting low protein keto diet. This diet kills cancer, cures diabetes and most of the life style diseases. Cancer cells feed on carbs and excess protein.

    What about the consumption of meat especially red meat? Why did you not include that? The human digestive system is designed for a vegetarian diet.

    My mom got cancer the first time when I was 15, (breast). She did chemo and beat it. 13 years later while on vacation in Europe she discovered that she had colon cancer. That was in 2018 and it has now come back for the 3rd time and metastasized in her liver, lung and brain. My sweet poor mother has deteriorated rapidly in the last month so much so that she has lost eye sight, mobility and confusion. It’s heartbreaking and I wish it was me.
